-- Ampex VPR-5 video tape recorder made simple and obvious --

Here's another image of the lightweight VPR-5, out of the box, shoulder strap not shown. The reel hubs are stowed "inward" in their default position, a spot reel of tape is threaded, it's ready to record. The top cover is closed and locked down, it's weather-sealed, enabling the VTR to operate "anywhere" in the field and record in difficult weather conditions.

Nagra is the state of the portable art!

Holy Crap! That is ONE fine piece of technology, eh?

Jeezzz...I could just look at that all day. M, I always recall that my Sony (TCM 5 or some such?) looked better than my Marantz, but Nagra always kicked butt. Looks do sometimes mean something...

Thats because the chassis on the TCD5M was more rigid and slim when compared to the Marantz plastic package. The only fault of the Sony TCD5M was limited bandwidth when compared to the Nak 550 or ultimately a Nagra.
